Remember: Heating System Sizing Matters!

- 9:16 am - December 15th, 2021

Based on your current heating system’s performance this heating season, are you planning on purchasing new heating equipment for the next year? If so, it’s important to remember that the size of your new equipment can make or break your comfort next year!

Here are some issues that can arise if you purchase equipment that isn’t the right fit for your home:

Uneven temperatures

Large equipment can potentially heat up a space and quickly shut down, preventing the rest of the home from reaching the set temperature. Small equipment will struggle to warm up the entire home.

Increased wear and tear

A heating system that’s too large for a home will cycle more frequently than a properly sized system, which puts a lot of strain on the system. A system that is too small for a home will run indefinitely, never reaching the set temperature and putting more wear on the equipment.

Increased fuel consumption

In addition to straining the system, constant cycling from large equipment can result in more fuel being consumed as it takes a lot of energy for the equipment to start back up. Additionally, because a smaller system is running constantly it will use up more fuel than a properly sized system would.
